Actor Jake Gyllenhaal won’t be pushing his body to its limits with hardcore workouts anymore — well at least while he’s filming his latest movie “An Enemy”.
He told the September issue of Details magazine:
“I haven’t cycled in a long time. I don’t run anymore. Do I take care of my body and take conditioning seriously? Yes. But exercising regularly doesn’t fit the energy of the character I’m playing now.” he says of An Enemy, in which he plays a man who seeks out his look-alike.
Ever since filming his last movie “End of Watch”, directed by David Ayer, Jake has a different outlook on life. He recalls his preparation for the role:
“[We had] fight training every morning at a Kenbo Karate dojo, and I got the s**t kicked out of me. Then [we went to] the shooting range, shooting past each other’s heads, with live ammo.
“There’s a simulated fire in the movie, but Dave wanted us to feel what that’s like, so he had us do a controlled burn.”
